Sunny Day Real Estate announce first ever UK show
Sunny Day Real Estate have confirmed their debut UK show at London’s Forum on 22nd April with Saves The Day as support.
Press release stuff:
Following an almost 15 year hiatus, all four original members (Jeremy Enigk, William Goldsmith, Dan Hoerner and Nate Mendel) of pioneering Seattle rock band Sunny Day Real Estate regrouped in 2009 to embark on a 20-city US tour as well as the re-issues for Diary and LP2 (or “The Pink Album for its entirely pink cover). Along with Sup Pop Records, the band unearthed mostly never-before-released material to enhance the releases, re-mastered the audio included new liner notes for both.
The band had an amazing experience on the road and have followed by confirming shows at the Australian festival Soundwave (February / March 2010), as well as a slot on the coveted Coachella Music Festival where they are set to appear on Sunday, the 18th April.
Says Mendel, “I don’t think any of us really ever considered, much less believed it possible, that we would ever get together and make music again, so it is incredible that we’re getting a chance to come over to the UK and play. We are genuinely grateful that there exists a large enough store of goodwill toward the band to allow us to finally make it over there, and we plan on doing anything we can to make it a memorable trip.”
